Port Edward LNG is a British Columbia company proposing to build and operate a small-scale Liquefied Natural Gas facility in Port Edward, near Prince Rupert. We will supply LNG for export and domestic customers looking to switch from carbon intensive fuels, such as coal or diesel, to cleaner natural gas. This is not LNG as you know it. Port Edward LNG would be just over one-percent of the size of a large LNG project, liquefying gas for export in small quantities via conventional container ship. We are excited about the potential to be part of the fabric of the community – providing great, family supporting jobs, and other local benefits while respecting the people and environment of the North Coast.
Natural gas is the cleanest burning hydrocarbon. It produces fewer greenhouse gas (GHG) and particulate emissions than coal or diesel.
For more than 50 years, LNG has been successfully used throughout the world.
Many Asian countries are switching from coal to natural gas to reduce air pollution. Using LNG from British Columbia can result in substantial net global GHG reductions while significantly improving air quality.
Liquified natural gas, or LNG, is natural gas that has been cooled to -162C. At this point, it becomes a clear, odourless, non-corrosive and non-toxic liquid. When exposed to the environment, LNG rapidly evaporates, leaving no residue on water or soil.
